There’s been plenty of New Jersey-bashing over the past two days. But on Day 3 of our series covering different generations’ views of and attitudes toward the Garden State, we look on the bright side. From Millennials to the Silent Generation, plenty of New Jersey residents — most of whom have lived here all their lives — couldn’t imagine leaving the state for any other.
Hundreds of people — mostly children — are killed each year nationwide, and thousands more are injured, by a vehicle going in reverse. New Jersey is no stranger to the problem. In December, a 2-year-old boy was killed in Lakewood when his aunt decided to switch her parking spot. Two years prior in Lakewood, another 2-year-old died from injuries sustained when a neighbor backed out of their driveway. A toddler in Sewell was killed by a car reversing out of its family’s driveway in October 2010.
On day two of our three-part series about different generations’ views about the state in which they live, we hear from a couple of families who still have more than two generations living in New Jersey. While the oldest members stuck it out in New Jersey for most or all of their lives, there’s no shortage of folks heading toward retirement who say they want out.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
